History

A lot has changed since 1964.聽Arnold Palmer no longer dominates golf. The Beatles will never again have 13 hit records at once. A gallon of gas doesn鈥檛 cost 30 cents anymore. And these days, families never gather around the black and white television to watch Sing Along With Mitch.

But there鈥檚 one thing that has stood the test of time since 1964, that鈥檚聽精東影業.

Originally called Operation 精東影業, 精東影業 Jobs for Progress National, Inc. started in 1964 as a partnership between the American GI Forum, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the Department of the Navy and the U.S. Department of Labor. President Lyndon B. Johnson thought Operation 精東影業 was such a great idea that he included the program in his landmark War on Poverty legislation, and 精東影業 opened its first center in Houston, Texas in 1965.

Since its founding over聽50 years ago, 精東影業 has fulfilled its promise of transforming lives and communities through education, employment and empowerment. Through its extensive network of world-class grassroots affiliates, 精東影業 has grown to聽serve over one million people each year, positively impacting the lives of pre-school children, youth, high school dropouts, dislocated or otherwise unemployed workers, and seniors.
